I'm using Raspbian Stretch Lite. Upon flashing it to an SD card and loading the card into my Raspberry Pi 1 Model A, and turning my pi on, I noticed that its waiting for a user to login before the rest of the OS finishes starting.
Although I can connect this pi to a keyboard and monitor and log in each and every time I want to turn it on, I'd rather the system just log in as the default
pi user at startup.
This is because I'll be using my pi on robotics projects, and would like to just turn the pi on and have it launch some startup services without having to connect it to a keyboard/monitor, login, disconnect the keyboard/monitor, and keep going.
So I ask: how do I configure Raspbian to auto-login as the
pi user at startup?
